The Detroit Science Center lets aspiring engineers and scientists get their tiny hands on more than 200 exhibits that explore space, biology, and physical science. Glimpse the mysteries of space travel or learn the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism that fuel online dating logarithms. A virtual universe of swirling stars and planets awaits inside the Dassault Systèmes Planetarium, where live presenters lead you on an intergalactic adventure followed by earthbound questions and answers. The Chrysler IMAX Dome theatre brings state-of-the-art technology and cinematronics to the 67-foot wide, four-story tall screen. The theatre immerses visitors in a rotating schedule of shows; currently, guests can explore Arabia, visit the Hubble, or allow the adrenalin-pumping excitement of NASCAR in digital surround to vroom off the screen and into unlicensed eyeballs.

The Detroit Science Center is home to the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, housing a collection of racecars, motorcycles, and racing snowmobiles alongside photos and exhibits featuring racing personalities, manufacturers, and the pioneering felines that paved the way for today's racecar-driving kittens.
